Sample Spelling Questions

Sample spelling questions where you have to identify incorrectly spelt words are common in all levels of  verbal ability tests.The test designer needs to choose commonly misspelled words which are in regular use, as it would be unfair to use obscure words which only a small percentage of candidates could be expected to know. This means that the test designer has a relatively restricted list of words to choose from and you will find that the same words tend to appear in many different suppliers tests.
